    To my cousin John, whom I remember as a great footballer with huge talent and such speed, grace and power on the football (soccer) field. He was virtually unmarkable, as I watched him play for Twyford football team when I was a boy. My condolences and prayers go to Tracey and to his daughters, Gemma, Becca, Rachel and Natalie. Sadly missed.

    Tracey, Gemma, Rebecca
    So sorry for your loss. I only knew him from the fun stories you shared about him. He sounded like a loving, husband and father and I’m sorry that your time with him has been cut short. Whenever you need a distraction and a nice glass of wine let me know!
